    What is your latest NON-Matty MOTUC buy?

    Recently bought a couple of MOTUC from ebay and it just got me curious about what MOTUC figs other people have bought outside of Matty Collector, whether it be Ebay, Big Bad Toy Store, Amazon, Big Lots or wherever.

    In the last few weeks I have bought

    Modulok
    Lord Dactus
    Batros
    King Hssss

    So what has everyone else bought recently?
    Take a look at my attempts at coloring

    Damn, I got a HUGE list of missing figures I have to buy to have a complete collection, hehe.

    Recently, I got online a Swiftwind (finally!!!!!!) and a third Horde Trooper set, now, I have to get a fourth one and that's it for the Troopers.

    I'm also planning to get in the next few months a Tytus and all the variants I don't have: Battle Armor & Thunder Punch He-Man, Dragon Blaster Skeletor, Bubble Power She-Ra, Hurricane & Spirit Hordak and Snake Man-at-Arms, wish me luck.

    I have never bought a figure from matty directly, all mine come from the secondary market really (through a subber here on the org primarily) but I recently picked up some spare weapons that were on ebay. Not sure why because most of my figures are on card... but they were a decent price.

    Since I started collecting late 2012, most of my figures have been either from Ebay or through the Org. I've only gotten a few figures through Matty. The shipping prices are outrageous. Makes me appreciate ebay more, although of course certain figures are very inflated in price (Teela, etc)

    My latest ebay buys were Sy-Clone about two weeks ago and Vykron about 4 weeks ago.
    17 more figures to go for a complete collection.

    Picked up a Goat Man on eBay. I decided it would be cheaper than traveling to a con.

    Well in recent months I have purchased Fang Man and Batros off Ebay, and currently I have a Zodac en route as well from there.

    Over the past few months I've gotten:

    Blade & Battle Lion from Oulala
    And
    Scorpia from Shecky

    All at the same or less than I would have paid if I got them from Matty.

    Most of my collection (both vintage and classics) came from the org honestly. I subbed for 2013 and 2014 but everything else was here and trades. My latest is the Club Etheria figures I bought from Shecky (Awesome reseller btw). I couldn't justify that sub for the three figures I wanted. Thats kinda how I feel about next year. I'm seriously considering going back to cherry picking the org for 2015. With guys like MOTU Maniac, Shecky, HHHELMSLEY, and the others that have hooked me up over the last couple years it just seems more desirable than trying to get rid of stuff. Oh, I also just got a bunch of accessories off the org....bird stand and BC saddle for BL.

    My last few figs were:

    Roboto - off ebay from China (half the price and perfect condition)
    Icer - Cheaper than Matty, free shipping, off ebay
    Plundor - my 2nd one...I didn't need him, but I got him at a mattel outlet for $13. Couldn't let him sit there for that
    Palace Guard 2 pack - Ebay for $30 shipped

    - - - Updated - - -

    anybody else have decent luck from the China sellers? Ever any issues?

    I bought Mossman off e-bay just because I forgot about the sale the day he was released. Also bought a second Trapjaw at a convention once so I could have a Kronis on display.

    Otherwise ordering from Matty has been pretty easy so, haven't had any secondary market needs.

    I just preordered the SDCC Hordak (with treasure box Imp!) from a seller on eBay. I know; I'm feeding the monster, but the monster is going to send me toys.
